GE: SM Goh on opposition proposal on manufacturing sector

SINGAPORE: Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong has commented on claims by a member of the opposition that Singapore should move away from manufacturing towards services such as education, health, IT and financial sectors. In his Facebook - MParader, Mr Goh said it will not be easy for the 420,000 blue-collar workers currently in manufacturing to move into white-collar jobs in these sectors. In his first comments on the issue, Mr Goh said the topic will make for a good debate on economic restructuring. But he cautioned that Singapore needs to think before deciding on such an idea. He also said such a switch may even mean opening more integrated resorts for jobs. The post by Mr Goh on the MParader has generated many comments from netizens. One even suggested that the topic be discussed in Parliament as a matter of national interest.
